Apollo 50th Student Challenge

Apollo Next Giant Leap Student Challenge

Nearly 300 Middle and High school students from across the Olympic and Kitsap Peninsulas participated in the Apollo Next Giant Leap Student Challenge being organized by the Northwest Earth and Space Sciences Pipeline (NESSP) and the Northwest Discovery Lab (NWDL).

This nationwide event was funded by a grant from NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement, and challenged students to design and build a lunar lander, program a Lego Mindstorms EV3 rover, and work together as a team to achieve ambitious goals to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing.
